Tunisia dancing

It is so good to see people dancing in Tunisia. They are happy dancing to happy song.

Young people across Tunisia are tapping into an online trend, posting videos of themselves dancing to the Pharrell Williams song Happy as a defiant reaction against the tense conditions in the country.

The clips, which have attracted tens of thousands of views on YouTube, have been criticised as “debauchery and moral decay” by conservative religious groups who disapprove of young Tunisians dancing to an American pop song.

Who cares!

I am so happy to see happy people! I am happy because these happy dancing people are living in Muslim country. All Muslim countries are not Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan. Young people living in Muslim countries should learn from Tunisian girls and boys to dance. Islamists would always say no to songs, no to dances. But don’t listen to them. Say big NO to Islamists and misogynists. And be happy.

    Say big NO to Islamists and misogynists.

    Well said, and this is a very clever form of protest.

    That said, I wish the protesters were using a different song. Pharrell Williams, the singer who performed Happy – and who headed a 24-hour-long promotional video featuring several hundred people across Los Angeles dancing to it – also did backup vocals on the song Blurred Lines, by Robin Thicke.

    Blurred Lines is an incredibly misogynistic song, and trivializes rape. So saying no to misogyny should also involve saying no to Pharrell Williams. Ref. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blurred_Lines_%28song%29
